Mr & Mrs McCormack
We can't thank Neil enough for helping us purchase our property in this current housing boom on the Gold Coast. In our journey to buy, Neil maintained a level of professionalism with a great eye for detail, due diligence in choosing properties that suited our requirements and was a great communicator in relaying all the intricacies of the properties he had viewed. Also, we were under a time constrain as we had a 'Contemporaneous' settlement so this added some stress to our situation - but Neil helped in maintaining a constant reassurance in our goal to purchase the desired home and ability to keep a cool head with any tricky negotiations. We found Neil to be very pro-active in updating us on any new information as soon as he received it and more than happy to answer any queries we had regarding concerns with interested properties. I doubt we would have been able to negotiate our way through the whole process of inquiring/ viewing or purchasing a property so easily without without Neil's guidance and experience to help us achieve buying our new home - one that we are so happy with! Then, even with all our energy focused on buying a new home there was time for a light-hearted moment - on viewing a certain property Neil had recommended, that we then voiced our interest in it, only to realise afterwards that we were accidently re-directed to another property, that wasn't for sale! So when we realised this and spoke to Neil the following morning he had already enquired to the owners(Investors) of the not on the market but vacate property to ask if they were willing to consider selling - in which they subsequently declined but that only solidified to us of Neil's enthusiasm to do his upmost in assisting in buying our dream home! A highly recommended Buyer's Advocate.

My wife Victoria and I cannot say enough positive things about our experience working with our Buyers Advocate, Neil Bone to purchase our new Gold Coast home. From the very outset, Neil was extremely responsive, knowledgeable of the Gold Coast and really took the time to understand our brief. His consultative approach helped in educating us on the market, giving us different perspectives to consider and really making us feel confident in the decisions we were making. Throughout the whole process, Neil truly had our best interests in mind and worked around the clock to ensure we found the right property that ticked all our boxes. He made the intimidating process of purchasing a home in this soaring market extremely easy and we are thrilled and very proud of the property we purchased. We cannot thank Neil enough for all the thorough emails/correspondence, phone calls, negotiations, viewings and overall attentiveness. We couldn’t have asked for a better buyers advocate.
Mr Moores & Mrs McHugh
We were luckily enough to have been recommended Neil Bone by a friend who has known him for many years. We both spoke to Neil on the phone and really liked him straight away along with his knowledge and honesty. He made us feel comfortable and positive that he would find us our dream home ticking all of our boxes while staying within our price range. We instructed Neil at the end of October 2021. Neil researched in depth suitable areas for our family keeping to our original specifications even when we started to go off course (forfeiting some of our requirements just to get somewhere!) He would bring us back and reassure us it was possible and wasn’t going to give up that easily. We were so glad he did because only 1 week and 5 days later we found our home here in Mount Nathan. The house ticks all of our boxes and the longer we are here the more we love it. Without Neil, we would not have this place and at such a reasonable price all thanks to him. Neil is very reliable, always at the end of the phone or email when you need him. He really cares about finding the “right” place for you and your family not just “a” place. He is very hardworking (all hours/ days we would receive emails and calls that were all welcomed) and really thinks about every detail, things you wouldn’t think about being the excited buyer. Neil took many photos and videos so we could see the properties even the bad parts you would normally miss making sure you have the full picture. His communication skills are second too none and we would look forward to hearing daily from Neil with his updates and new finds. When communicating with other agents on your behalf Neil was able to cut through all the nonsense you would normally hear as he had the knowledge to do so, this gave us such peace of mind knowing someone was on our side with us being so far away buying blind, this is exactly what we needed! Neil communicated with the previous owner, selling agent, our lawyers and the building & pest company all on our behalf! He built a great relationship between us all, even to the point the previous owner trusted him to show the building & pest company around the place when she was unable to be there. Neil did not miss a trick, he chased up all communication that we would have missed and was on the ball the whole time. As we were not there to carry out the final inspection Neil did this for us and even offered to collect the keys on completion day! You really get 100% of his service to the end and beyond. I have recommended Neil to some friends and others that have thanked me saying he is amazing, so I know they are as happy with his service as we were. We feel like we have gained a friend in Neil and hope to keep in contact with him in the future. We highly recommend him!
